Every child deserves a chance. But there are still too many deaths that simply don't need to happen. You'll help more women and children survive and lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
Every day 16,000 children under five die, mostly from preventable causes. And around 830 women die from preventable causes linked to pregnancy and childbirth. Many children don’t get enough nourishment in their first 1,000 days, hindering growth, brain function and immunity.
World Vision is a leading NGO investor addressing these challenges. Our goal is to improve health and nutrition, contributing to the global reduction of deaths among mothers and children under five.
To do this, we tackle the big picture. Rather than simply providing one-off resources, we empower families through education and lasting behavioural change. We build community capacity to monitor and address causes of death and illness. And we advocate for quality health services, including through partnering with governments.
